MLP Macquarie’s final fling
The Merino Lifetime Productivity project is the world’s largest sheep experiment.

Hear MLP Macquarie Chair Matthew Coddington, sheepclasser Chris Bowman, site enthusiast and breeder Graeme Wells and data analyst Dr Sue Mortimer from NSW DPI discuss the trends and industry ramifications for this momentous project.
